Fat Joe, whose real name is Joseph Cartagena, turned himself into a Federal Detention Center in Miami for tax evasion, reports People

The rapper was sentenced back in June for failing to pay taxes during 2007 and 2008. He'll serve four months and pay a $15,000 fine, followed by a one-year supervised release. He had originally been looking at two years in prison, but the judge showed leniency when Fat Joe paid back taxes and also worked to increase his charitable donations, including giving computers to schools.
